Opposition party DMK and its allies to stage demonstration on Farm Bills

There have been massive protests regarding the farm bills all over India. The DMK and its collaborators on Monday chose to stage protests across Tamil Nadu on September 28 to request the Centre to take back the farm bills passed in Parliament. A meet held at DMK headquarters here, directed by the Dravidian party chief M K Stalin, said the demonstration is to convict the ruling AIADMK government as well which is lending a helping hand to the Centre on the matter. The passage of bills has once again put a question mark on "federalism" besides accelerating poor farmers to a state of suffering, a resolution adopted at the meeting of DMK and its allies said.

The bills provide the way for the "anti-social activity of hoarding farm produce," and its passage in the Rajya Sabha through a voice vote without division was arbitrary and defeated Parliamentary conventions, the resolution asserted. The protest organised for next week is aimed at requesting the Union government to withdraw the bills that have been adopted in Parliament, it said. "This meeting places on record its strong opposition to the farm bills passed by the Centre which is against the farmers, farm labourers, consumers and the general public and which would cause a setback to progress of agriculture," the resolution said.

Also, it denounced the Centre for passage of bills in the Rajya Sabha in "violation" of rules and the AIADMK for its support to the bills. The bills that have been passed "interfere" in the "independent" agriculture markets and affected its natural functioning paving the way for a situation in which even the Minimum Support Price would be a "question mark," and also imperilled food security, the resolution claimed.
